(08:51:14) Always a good start to the day..

(10:32:05) This Tweet Will Make You Think Twice About Capitalising Every Word In A Sentence.

(10:59:02) The last @JohnDredge "Nothing To Do With Anything" show is simply dripping with hilarity. Surface wipes are available

(11:26:35) RT @bookhive: Ok let's retweet this. @CocaCola get the hell out of Norwich. Nobody loves you here. Nobody. R

(19:12:05) I guess, because pre-gig music should not really be better than the performance itself, that would explain why it's generally so annoying.

(20:00:28) Just enjoyed a wonderful set by @chainsunchained - fantastic harmonies and a really great rapport with the crowd.

(21:59:29) Inspired by @allybrno, I saw this BT radio tower as we were driving past and felt compelled to stop…

(16:58:54) Games from our childhood #OriginalMemory

Tweets for 26 May 2014


(08:22:06) Good morning from a rather damp seaside. It doesn't matter, though, because it's good to get away. Or indeed (my childhood) home.

(09:05:29) Rather enjoying the long-awaited return of @Brennig's @ThisRealityPod as the soundtrack to a leisurely bank holiday

(13:50:16) We saw this in a charity shop and couldn't work out what exactly it was for... #weirdesteggcupever

(14:33:03) I have the most erudite twitterpals: @boggits, @regularjen, @mssres, @koshkajay @hergiebird, @Stenbird and @miche sure know their salt pigs!

Tweets for 25 May 2014


(21:52:31) We played a game of 'Monarchy' this evening - a great way to learn the names of kings and queens!

Tweets for 24 May 2014


(08:14:34) In retrospect, perhaps I shouldn't have proposed with "For the sake of argument, why don't we get married?" #joke #whatwouldcheggerstweet

(08:17:49) I've always preferred the older woman, which is why I've just downloaded an online carbon dating app. #whatwouldcheggerstweet 

(08:25:12) Am I the only person who habitually presses 'Just once' on my Android tablet? Am I scared of commitment or do I prefer a sense of occasion?

(11:56:21) I've said it before and I'll say it again: I hate déjà-vu.

(13:38:31) Today was computer tidy-up day. It's a bit tragic, maybe, but I like to have all green on my Nagios dasboard. Not Al Green. That'd be odd.

(13:56:07) RT @CuteEmergency: This shirt makes me laugh so hard.

Tweets for 23 May 2014


(07:22:19) This tiny pair of trousers keeps making it into (and through) the washing. I honestly have no idea…

(11:18:23) The Friday before a bank holiday shouldn't be this busy.

(21:12:16) On occasion, poots and I find the tesco website more helpful than Google.

Tweets for 22 May 2014


(09:15:58) Good morning. I've caught up. It's "Bring your voting card to work" day today. For me, anyway.

(10:26:09) I really loved the interval song "12" during this year's #EurovisionSongContest2014 - written by @riccowichmann & @Pharfar1 :) (h/t @jn2n!)

(10:27:22) Amusing comedy: #EurovisionSongContest2014

(13:30:19) Someone needs to invent a non-conductive umbrella. Actually, it's really not worth bothering. Quality thunderstorm action outside.

(18:29:39) I'm off out of the house to exercise. Exercise my democratic right, that is! BOOM! ~drops the mic~ ~trips over cable tangled between feet~

Tweets for 21 May 2014


(10:16:18) RT @Feexby: I know ordinary Tues are 24 hours long, but minitues?

(12:04:32) I am now watching the Party Election Broadcasts for the EU elections. I am none the wiser. And none the more foolish.

Tweets for 20 May 2014


(09:23:01) Morning. Tuesday. That's Tuesday morning. Lordy. I'm going to wish you a lovely day, and then I'm going to hide. From Tuesday.

(11:44:04) Pro photographer in #StAlbans needed by @epilepsyaction - Fri 23 May for a 1 hr photo shoot. Please email with rates.

(16:33:54) How come it took me so long to find the little option on Facebook that says "I don't want to see posts from The Daily Mail" ..?

(19:29:55) Quite enjoyed the music at @Asda this evening. PARTY ON, SHOPPERS.

(20:49:03) I'm still not quite sure what @fridgemagnet2 has got me roped into...

(21:52:08) Right, well, having recorded the most puzzling thing I have ever (possibly) had put into the public domain, I shall go to bed. G'night you!

Tweets for 19 May 2014


(10:53:59) I have no idea who to vote for on Thursday. I have a lot of ideas of who NOT to vote for. That doesn't help much, does it..?

(13:21:47) Thinking of moving to Iceland. Making a bed in the freezer section near the lasagne.

Tweets for 18 May 2014


(12:07:31) RT @poots: This is a story of Luton that I want the world to hear: This is a town of love not hate. #Luton

(12:10:50) Good afternoon. Interesting studio task of the day: recording French Speaking dialogue for Chris, who has a GCSE exam in it quite soon...

Tweets for 17 May 2014


(21:12:29) Nothing to report. Well, nothing of any consequence. Pondering tactical sleep... while it's cooled down a bit! Oh, and good evening.

Tweets for 15 May 2014


(10:55:52) Good morning. What remains of it. Blue skies in Watford... that's as far as I've got.

(11:55:15) RT @DiamondLightSou: Diamond is opening its doors to the public in June! See inside the world of modern science http…

(12:27:26) I can't see myself spending any time playing this ... (Shift-F12 to start) #childhoodaddiction

(15:58:40) Buzzing from some delicious @AMTCoffeeLtd coffee - the staff at the Watford Junction stand make the best coffee this side of London :)

(15:59:43) I am, however, left baffled by a conversation with @sm2n about Beats by Dr Dre being bought by Apple. I'm not sure what exactly it is...(!)

(16:09:50) Interesting @Engadget piece on the HTC phone that offered Beats technology:

(19:10:52) Scanning car insurance documents. It's how I roll.

Tweets for 14 May 2014


(11:13:58) Quite pleased - my @nokia_uk Lumia 1520 can now record in STEREO! I can recommend Audio Recorder Pro by @phonetorch - A very helpful man!

Tweets for 13 May 2014


(12:40:48) Heh. On new Twitter, the Konami code makes the little bird at the top spin round. (up up down down left right left right B A)

(22:44:34) Off to bed. Lots of photos uploaded to Facebook. Some uploaded to Flickr. Funny how that works.

Tweets for 12 May 2014


(10:54:33) Good Monday. Nope.. best I can do. *sleepy*

(21:52:38) My options are: go into politics or go to bed. Good night.

(21:53:31) (After a long-overdue change of transcoding script. I have no idea why I used mpeg when h264 seems to work fine. Baffling). Night.

(08:33:27) Good morning from the Czech Republic. It's sunny here, but windy ... perfect for getting out and looking at all the country has to offer.

(21:24:19) I just read that on 12th May, Roy Hodgson will announce the England World Cup squad at Griffin House, #Luton - interesting location choice.

(09:42:11) Good morning. Bank holiday Monday, so I have a list. Starting off with sorting out the photos from the weekend.. there may be a blog entry..

(12:20:11) I wrote a blog post about my weekend. It's here:

(13:05:07) British Touring Cars weekend at Thruxton via @audioboo

(14:47:25) Back from Mr Asda's shop (cereal crisis) and now: wiring. Of sorts.

(14:51:17) RT @christopherw: @syzygy on a random cereal bent, Morrison's Savers Bran Flakes are delicious, and stupidly cheap

(20:17:26) It's a Monday Sunday evening.

(20:18:40) I am planning to spend the remainder of the evening not ironing. It has been extremely successful so far.

(22:18:58) Off to bed. Bye bye weekend - it's been nice knowing you. And good night to you.

Tweets for 04 May 2014


(22:33:21) Totally worn out after a fab weekend at Thruxton. I was just watching the #BTCC; the competitors must be completely exhausted! Night :)

Tweets for 03 May 2014


(07:14:03) Morning. Is it sunny yet?

(16:36:11) Rob Austin's Touring Car Driving About. It is glorious here at Thruxton.

(16:39:57) I am everso pleased that you were so kind to share your sunshine earlier. I saw some driving about. It was quite good.

(16:40:24) Little Scarlett's windscreen is being 'done' (after being visited upon by a large rock/stone/piece of…

(14:42:14) RT @paulwheatley: Just found some trousers in my wardrobe that I last wore to a wedding in 2001. Found a Nokia3210 in the pocket.

(15:57:13) I just had to explain the Daily Mail to one of my colleagues. It wasn't pretty.

(20:20:30) Historic Amesbury. It's well historic.

Tweets for 01 May 2014


(10:40:24) Having a bit of a shocker. But I had brie and crackers for elevenses, so that's a bonus. Morning.

(11:03:45) So far today I've had the Estonian, Swedish and Icelandic #Eurovision songs stuck in my head. I reckon Sweden will win. I hope Latvia does.

(12:37:22) ATTENTION! A little care. Sorry. All went a bit Lithuanian then. #Eurovision

(17:20:06) On the @Weekendery later - Get My Goat. What's the most annoying workplace habit? I can think of loads... #GetMyGoat 9pm - #MintFM! :)

(19:35:24) What do you get the radio show that has everything? A good dose of Bank Holiday @WEEKENDERY! Tune in? 9pm UK! BANZAI!

(20:39:53) The answer is: "Sliding on the floor in a most ungentlemanly fashion got him sent back to Berkshire" but what is the question? #MyGenreation

(07:55:12) "Thank you for calling. Your call is important to us." Clearly not important enough to have someone to answer it. Eventually. #moany

(09:21:01) There should be a name for the face my colleagues pull when they sniff their empty (and supposedly clean) protein shake beakers...
